learn the leaf stitch

There is no household item that cannot be made ten times sweeter with a stitch or two. Case in point: these leaf stitch coasters. If you’ve got the basics of needlepoint down (it’s a form of embroidery done on open-weave canvas), you might like to try your crafty hand at the leaf stitch. Karen Barbē’s tutorial will help you create this nifty interlocking pattern, on which you can rest many a hot beverage. Thread your needle and get stitching over here.
